175 pages, $27.95
BASED IN MONTRÉAL, painter Peter Flinsch, now 88, has been renowned among art critics and historians for decades, having had major shows in Berlin and New York, among other cultural centers. But he remains unknown to people in the queer community—a status that has been begging for a remedy.
And here it is. Captured in beautiful reproductions, over 100 of Flinsch’s paintings, sketches, and sculptures are gathered in Peter Flinsch: The Body in Question, a much-needed anthology of the artist’s tremendous contribution to gay erotica.
